What is your best sports day?

OK, call me crazy, but I'm officially sick of the draft. From the second I am typing this, ESPN is telling me it is 4 days, 2 hours, 51 minutes and 46 seconds from the draft starting, and news replaces speculation. So in trying to think of ANYTHING to talk about, besides the draft, I just thought to this past weekend....

Sunday was a day that is in the running for my Best Sports Day ever. I had Legend's club seats to Sunday's Yankee game (not the 22 run blow out), putting me on the 1st row of the third baseline, it was the closest Ive ever been to, well, any sporting event. I got a foul ball, and lived in the lap of luxury with free food, free drinks, etc in one of the most beautiful, awe-inspiring baseball stadiums I have ever set foot into. The Yankees won in a thrilling game with some close calls, I got my first foul ball, and I got multiple opportunities to heckle the Indians (fans and players).

After the game, I got home in time to watch the second half of the first game of the Lakers playoff game, to watch them dominate game one. I got an hour break or so, and then watched my NJ Devils get revenge against the Carolina Hurricanes in a dramatic overtime finish.

At the end of the day, I was exhausted, full, and sunburnt, but I couldn't help but reflect on the day. I can safely say that the day was, beginning to end, the best full sports day I have experienced in a long time (I can't say ever yet... Super Bowl XXIX was pretty fun).

But now the point of this post. I want to know Nation: What is your best sports day? It can involve the Niners or not, I just want to watch some people wax poetic about different experiences they have had in their sporting lives. Have fun Nation!
